Q: What are is your opinion of Labor Day weekend?

A: “As most holidays, people don’t celebrate the holiday for what it is and they just use it as an excuse to drink alcohol. I don’t see anything wrong with it, but I think they should focus more on celebrating what the holiday is.” – Nisael Guzman, sophomore undeclared major

Q: What are your thoughts on Labor Day weekend?

A: “My thoughts about Labor Day are I feel like it has been changing due to a lot of policy making and restrictions by the law enforcement. Even though those things are taking effect, people are still very excited about it, especially college students and the freshmen of course. I think it is more of an endangerment to the freshmen because seniors have done it for a few years and know what is going on. The idea of it is not as extreme or fun or dangerous as it used to be due to the law enforcement. Those are my thoughts and I hope that we can find better ways to spend our Labor Day.” – Daone Lee, senior sociology major
